Abstract

SECTION A Radio Emissions From Jupiter.
The thesis begins with a detailed review of the observed
properties of Jupiter's decimetric and decametric radio emissions.
It then describes observations of the mean power of Jupiter's
emissions at six frequencies in the range 4.7 to 28.0 latz
which were used to prepare histograms of relative power and probability
of occurrence at each frequency. The spectral variations of
mean flux density and peak flux density were determined and the data
at several frequencies examined for the influence of Jupiter's satellite
Io.
Observations of linear polarisation at 2500 MHz were made
to determine the radio rotation period of Jupiter and the configuration
of Jupiter's magnetic field.
SECTION B Fine Structure in Solar Radio Emissions.
A new type of solar radio burst showing frequency splitting
has been observed regularly below 60 MHz. The bursts have a duration
of 1 - 2 sec and a frequency interval between their elements of
0.1 - 1.0 MHz.
